Dramatic story, humor, audience participation, and even a little Shakespeare all contribute to the action. The story is based on the classic story of the Golem, where Rabbi Judah Loew brings to life a magical creature to defend the community.

In a 50-minute piece combining acting and flamenco dance, Cia Sautter’s Golmah offers drama, humor, entertainment, and even audience participation to find out what really happened to women in a classic Jewish story, the Golem.

The Golem is a creature that a great rabbi brings to life to protects the Jews of Prague.The main storyteller in Golmah is Gittele, who shares the well-known story of the Golem, then offers how the women of Prague actually made one first.

Olive and Otto will lead an embodied practice in movement expression and creation using the somatic approach of Body-Mind Centering®. BMC® utilizes experiential study through application of anatomical, physiological, and developmental principles in hands-on practice, movement, and sound explorations. Participants will refine their creative process and performance work through self-study and group exploration. This training will enable participants to experience—in the present—how an understanding of their evolutionary past directly influences their life and their art.

This first half of the series focuses on the artist as performer and their role in conveying content while understanding their audience. Utilizing the support of different body systems, participants will explore the balance of internal and external awareness and intention in performative contexts.
